    XP should give you an option to format the drive in either FAT32 or NTFS format. You will probably have to reformat & partition the drive before xp will install. Hope this helps.

Yes you have to delete the partitions making one large drive and then format it in NTFS as XP is more secure in this file system and utilizes the space better.

How to plug front panal wires in mother board of compac evo d510 cmt?


I realize that this posted problem is over 4 months old, but in the interest it may help someone;

According to Compaq this is the motherboard used in the Evo D510 Convertible Mini-Tower,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MotherBoard-Compaq-Evo-D510CMT-Pentium-4-2-4GHZ-512MB-Ram-Heat-Sink-/120814069962?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c211468ca

Observe the blue long female connector on the motherboard. This connector is where the 40-pin flat IDE ribbon cable for the Harddrive, plugs in.

http://www.andovercg.com/datasheets/compaq-hp-evo-d510.pdf

(On the above link; it may not work as a direct link. It is a PDF file you download.
In case it does not work just by clicking on it; copy it, paste it into your address bar, press the Enter key )

Scroll the page down to a little more than halfway. Observe the illustration of the motherboard to the Left of the page.
(Has J22, J21, P23, J20, J40, P54, above it)

Look at CR1, CR2, CR4, and P5

Hello i have compaq evo d510 and


You need to partition your Hard drive to however much you want reserved for the Linux OS. You need to get a live CD of the Linux distribution you want and after you have partitioned your Hard drive, you need to boot from the live CD and install Linux onto the Partitioned part of the hard drive. DO NOT install Linux onto the regular partition, this will mess up your current operating system

Yes up to 3.2Ghz with same Bus speed. cache doesnt matter.
